At Axcis, we are proud to sponsor the National Association of Special Educational Needs (nasen). But what is coming up in 2019 with this fantastic organisation? Find out here.
EYSEND Partnership: Meeting the Needs of Every Child: SEND for Managers in PVIs
This FREE one day course is running from January through until March in various locations across the country.
The course offers information and resources for supporting all children with SEND in PVI settings, including the role of the SENCO and effective inclusive practice, and then focuses specifically on speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). It will enable managers to offer training in SEND to their staff teams. This training day may also be relevant to leaders in Nursery and Reception classes (EYFS 1 & 2) in schools. This course is jointly delivered by nasen and ICAN, the children’s communication charity, through the EYSEND Partnership.
